The structure

Applications are open to any and all individuals and/or companies creating new products made with at least 50% dairy. Once applications close, we meticulously review and vet all applications and select the top eight to join us for our program.

Our three-month program features access to industry-specific content resources, high-quality and tailored mentorship, and a group stipend to cover costs associated with producing, developing, and fine-tuning products and business plans.

Our program kicks off with two days of in-person events, networking, and connection in California, followed by 12 weeks of virtual programming requiring a commitment of approximately 3 hours per week.

At the conclusion of the program, the cohort will sample and pitch their products to a panel of industry-expert judges at our final pitch event. Four winners will receive a $30,000 prize and access to an exclusive retailer and investor event to generate business leads and investment opportunities.

A $100,000 grand prize will be awarded to the winner with the highest sales tracked over a year after the live pitch event.
